Kulushkat! Just Shut Up and Eat!

Some of the best falafel I have had in NYC!

This was such a memorable meal that I had to give it some love here on the blog. It’s been months since we visited this little slice of deliciousness after a 5K running event in Prospect Park on a sweltering humid night in Brooklyn. We discovered this eatery because we just wanted somewhere to eat dinner in some cool AC! Continue reading Kulushkat! Just Shut Up and Eat!

Maoz Vegetarian NYC. When my body needs a healthy break!

I finally popped my Maoz cherry! So many times I walked by this place down in Union Square NYC, saw all the rave reviews on Yelp, but did not drop in to try it out. It was my first time yesterday for lunch and discovered a terrific falafel sandwich and sweet potato fries! Hot damn this was good. My taste buds approved of this healthier option that I was putting into my mouth. Yummers!

Nothing that moos or oinks. Consider it a sort of cleansing. My body thanks me. My intestinal tract thanks me. My butthole thanks me.

After a night out around Greenwich Village abusing my liver with a bunch of friends we happened upon this falafel mecca to chow down. I was instantly hooked.

Mamoun’s Falafel is one of those hole in the wall places that has been around since the 1970’s and certainly looks the part. Decor is non-existant, as is any real seating other than a few cramped tables and a bench out by the front door, and the walls are covered by worn out wood paneling and faded pictures. To me it’s part of the charm here. Honestly, no one really cares as evidenced by the non-stop line of people coming and going the night we were here. I observed customer after customer arriving hungry with a yearning for falafel goodness, and when handed that sandwich left with a fanatical look in their eyes. Continue reading Holy falafel Batman!
